York City’s Matty Blair Injured After Being Tackled By Mannequin While Training

By Chris Wright

York City midfielder Matty Blair has become the first footballer in the history of everything that’s ever existed on every plane of existence to be injured in a tackle with a training ground dummy – a dubious honour if ever there was one.

Blair was forced to nip off to hospital yesterday when he suffered a nasty cut on his knee having toppled into the wire mesh mannequin during a tussle with a teammate.

York manager Gary Mills told the York Press, presumably in the gaps between his raucous laughter:

“Matty Blair got tackled by a mannequin and ended up with a gash in his knee. He stumbled into it after tangling with Michael Potts and had to have a good few stitches in his knee.

“I think he’s the first footballer ever to be injured by a mannequin and he’s had a fair bit of ribbing but he will be fine for tomorrow.”

Which prompts us to ask: Who’s the real dummy in all of this?

Apparently it’s in the genes.

    I guess it’s to be expected from a player who tries to take a throw-in without the ball.
